I am relativly inexperianced with *nix, but have enough familirity as a user to follow instructions and innovate etc (ie i unerstand output redirection, just howusefull grep is and wonder why everything takes so much longer on my windows machines, etc.)

Did you edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 like the README says to? You have to comment the Load "GLcore" and Load "dri" lines...

You will also have to change Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia", but that's farther down in the config file. I see from your log that it's still trying to load the "nv" driver.
